Globalists Claim Mass Immigration Helps The US Economy – Here’s Why That’s A Lie

March 29, 2024

By Brandon Smith

I have said it many times in the past but I think it bears repeating once again: If you want to understand why world events happen the way they do, you must understand the goals and influence of globalist institutions. You must accept the fact that these people create most of the national and international disasters you and I have to deal with on a regular basis and oftentimes they create these disasters deliberately.

Yes, I know, there are plenty of skeptics out there that think all geopolitics and crisis events are random or a product of bureaucratic stupidity; and those people are wrong. They have no idea what they’re talking about because they’re basing this conclusion on assumptions rather than facts and research. Make no mistake, there’s a good reason why it feels like the whole world has gone crazy all at once.

The primary purpose of the globalists is to erase national borders and homogenize all countries and cultures under one economic and governmental system. They have openly admitted to this plan on numerous occasions. One of the most revealing quotes on the agenda comes from Clinton Administration Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbot, who stated in Time magazine that:

In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority… National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.”

He adds in the same article a lesser known quote:

“…The free world formed multilateral financial institutions that depend on member states’ willingness to give up a degree of sovereignty. The International Monetary Fund can virtually dictate fiscal policies, even including how much tax a government should levy on its citizens. The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade regulates how much duty a nation can charge on imports. These organizations can be seen as the protoministries of trade, finance and development for a united world.”

The people who push for this agenda are generally members of a number of globalist organizations, from the Council on Foreign Relations to the Tavistock Institute to the World Economic Forum to the IMF or World Bank, not to mention the Bank for International Settlements and the Council For Inclusive Capitalism. However, these think-tank groups are only part of the bigger picture. They are supported by some of the largest banking and investment corporations in the world, including Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, HSBC, Vanguard, Blackrock, etc.

If you want to know why mass illegal immigration is a growing crisis at this time and why the current government has been actively trying to enforce an open border police in the US, simply look into the financial aspects of pro-illegal immigration lobbying groups and think tanks pushing open borders messaging into the mainstream. You will find many of these banks and investment funds connected to them in one way or another.

For example, the list of companies backing the Governor of New York’s plan to subsidize illegal aliens entering the state is very revealing. If they’re allowed to continue offering incentives to illegals then those people will continue trying to come to the US; this isn’t complicated. The conspiracy is out in the open.

Admitting To The Agenda, Then Painting It As A Positive

For the first few years of Joe Biden’s presidency, he and his cohorts attempted to deny there was any mass illegal migration problem at all. However, when media coverage (mostly independent) began to expose the enormous caravans of illegals overwhelming border towns like El Paso, Texas, he was forced to acknowledge that the crisis was in fact a crisis.

But, if you thought that forcing Biden to admit to the migrant disaster was going to force him to do something about it, you were sorely mistaken. The reason mass immigration exists right now is exactly because the Biden Administration and globalist institutions are offering free handouts to “asylum seekers.” All they have to do to stop the rising tide of illegals is to stop offering them free stuff. Clearly, the political elites have no intention of doing this.

Instead, government officials, think-tanks and the media have decided that since they’re now pressed to admit that mass immigration and open borders are real, they’re going to spin the crisis as if it’s actually a good thing for America.

In a narrative similar to the one used by EU officials to justify their support of the invasion of Islamic fundamentalists from 2014 onward, American elites claim that western nations are “desperate for a younger population” which can fill the “needs of the labor market.” They claim than mass migrations into the west are “good for the economy.”

This was also the primary message of a World Economic Forum conference on migration and labor held in March. The globalist organization discussed how open borders and mass immigration could be framed as a “positive” in terms of economic advantages. And the talking points derived from WEF events always find their way into the corporate media. The main takeaway? Protectionism (of national borders) is bad and countries that engage in it will be at an economic disadvantage.

Since last month there’s been a hailstorm of establishment media articles and news reports suggesting that mass immigration will boost GDP and make America stronger. These assertions are all built on a single line from a single report from the Congressional Budget Office which states:

In our projections, the deficit is also smaller than it was last year because economic output is greater, partly as a result of more people working. The labor force in 2033 (EDITOR’S NOTE: Do they mean 2023?) is larger by 5.2 million people, mostly because of higher net immigration. As a result of those changes in the labor force, we estimate that, from 2023 to 2034, GDP will be greater by about $7 trillion and revenues will be greater by about $1 trillion than they would have been otherwise. We are continuing to assess the implications of immigration for revenues and spending.”

Bloomberg recently published an article boasting that this line from the CBO report shows that the rising fears among Americans over illegal immigration are unfounded. They question why the migrant crisis is a top issue going into the 2024 elections and cite a number of major banking institutions that have adjusted their US fiscal outlook into the positive because of the CBO’s data point and higher immigration. Bloomberg quotes the HSBC:

Immigration is not just a highly charged social and political issue, it is also a big macroeconomic one,” Janet Henry, global chief economist at HSBC Holdings Plc, wrote in a note to clients Tuesday. No advanced economy is benefiting from immigration quite like the U.S., and “the impact of migration has been an important part of the U.S. growth story over the past two years.”

Firstly, let’s clarify something in terms of the CBO’s theory – The US deficit has fallen in direct correlation to the Federal Reserve raising interest rates. It’s more expensive to borrow for everyone, including the government, which makes it more expensive to spend. Because of far higher interest payments the US is now adding over $1 Trillion every 100 days to the national debt. That’s unprecedented.

Any spending cuts can be directly attributed to higher interest rates, NOT immigration. The CBO mentions this fact very quickly in the same report, without elaborating on why they think immigrants add value. But let’s consider the GDP claim for a moment; why would the CBO expect higher immigration to add $7 trillion to the GDP in the next ten years?

Illegal Immigrants Are A Net Negative – We Don’t Need Them

They say it’s about more people working, but what about more people taking welfare and other subsidies? Neither the CBO (nor the media) make any distinction between legal migrants and illegal migrants when it comes to economic effects.

Legal migrants usually have careers, business plans, skill sets and their own money coming into the US. Most illegals have nothing – Little education, no substantial skill sets, no money and no plan other than to get free handouts wherever possible. We have seen the proof of this in places like New York and Washington DC, where a tiny percentage of migrants bused into the cities have absolutely crushed their welfare infrastructure.

It’s estimated that the net lifetime cost of each illegal immigrant for the American taxpayer is over $68,000. While some illegals do end up paying taxes, their overall cost is far higher than the amount they pay in.

The jobs market has been inflated by trillions in Federal Reserve stimulus and most of the jobs created are low wage retail and service positions that will disappear in a couple years anyway. The CBO notes in the same report that unemployment is set to increase in 2024, but the media overlooked that little tidbit of information.

Migrants are not needed to keep the labor market going. In fact, as jobs numbers inevitably plummet due to higher interest rates illegals will only add to jobless levels and poverty levels in the US, further dragging the economy down.

Not to mention, the American housing market has suffered an oppressive spike in prices, with home costs and rents in many places doubling. This is caused in part by the millions of migrants entering the country each year looking for housing and getting help from US government programs to secure that housing. Get rid of the illegals and I guarantee rent costs will go down quickly.

Almost all of the projected GDP gain from illegal immigrants comes from their wages which go into their pockets (the same wages they send back to their families in their home countries). There is no direct GDP gain from illegals in terms of benefits to the overall economy. That said, the CBO may also be accounting for another factor which many Americans are unaware of – Government spending being added to GDP.

As I’ve noted in the past, a large portion of GDP calculated by state governments and the federal government comes from spending. The more the government spends the higher GDP climbs. It doesn’t matter if that money was wasted, it is still counted as rising economic activity.

So, if the US is adding 2-3 million illegals per year to the population and the government is spending thousands in tax dollars per year on each illegal through various subsidies, that will amount to billions per year in extra GDP. And the more they allow illegals to enter the country unchecked the more GDP can grow exponentially. Is that good for the economy? No. It’s going to destroy the economy and we are already seeing the effects, but the government and the media can spin it to look like it’s a positive.

The head of the CBO is a Republican but he’s also a former member of the IMF, so it’s not surprising he would paint mass immigration as a positive. The globalists want to end national sovereignty and the fastest way to do that is to create open border conditions, kill domestic economies, erase western culture and then swoop in with a “global solution” after the dust settles. This is the plan; to destabilize the US economic system, not save it. And, illegal immigrants are a useful tool for that end game.

    Something to consider. They wave their flags. They still wave them when living here for a while. Mexico will not let another flag fly above theirs, like we used to do. They enforce their border unless immigrants are passing through.

  • conservativeinmass March 29, 2024 at 12:05 pm

    Illegal immigration carried out under ruse of asylum seekers is a Net Negative for all involved

  • Gauntlet33 March 29, 2024 at 5:02 pm

    Brandon, yup, yup, and yup. You said it all. It’s a no-brainer that immigrants with little to no skills is bad for the economy, but you broke it down very well. Anybody who disagrees is a flaming idiot, a Communist, or likely both.

  • Thomasthethomas March 29, 2024 at 6:01 pm

    Like that meme said, if they didn’t improve their country how could they improve ours? Very much the opposite will happen if you look at where they came from.

  • Canadian March 29, 2024 at 6:49 pm

    They are actively filtering legal immigrants. There is still a COVID vax mandate for green cards, because they don’t want any conservative immigrants.

    • Covington March 31, 2024 at 2:35 am

      The images of the mass one way flows of illegas past an incomplete border wall invoke the sensation of impendimg doom, destruction, chaos and enslavement of all. Similar to The Walking Dead series where people sought shelter in a prison. Enslavement of all of humanity is the globalist end game. Mass ilegal imagration is the centralization of the masses under their own volition followed by 15 minute smart cities. Mass enslavement. So lovely. And we have a weak speaker of the house who refuses to use the power of the purse to stop this.

    “The primary purpose of the globalists is to erase national borders and homogenize all countries and cultures under one economic and governmental system… to destabilize the US economic system, not save it. And, illegal immigrants are a useful tool for that end game.”
    Illegal immigration is akin to someone coming into your house without your permission. They are trespassers, pure and simple. They do not belong in your house. You did not invite them. And if they persist in coming in – they are disrespectful bullies… or worse.
    Just because SOMEONE ELSE says Your House Invader has a ‘right’ to be in your home does not make it so. That is nonsense and without any basis in law or basic fairness and civility.
    If sickly Globalists want to erase borders… that is like erasing the properly line between your house and land and everyone else in the whole World. Again, like not having a defended boundary to your own house whatsoever. A wide-open door.
    Well, delusional Globalists… if erasing the boundary between one’s property and people outside your boundary line is so great…then YOU GO FIRST. Let us see illegal aliens living your Globalists’ houses and taking up space in Globalist bedrooms and using up all the towels and toilet paper in YOUR Globalist homes first. And camping on your palatial green grass and well-manicured garden areas. And some might try to get friendly with members of your own family. Are you down with that?
    You are supposed to be our Great Leaders, right? OK, then you take the lead! You let the invaders take over YOUR property before you expect that of We the People to go along with this garbage.
    But first, We will pay close attention to how all those invaders living in your gated mansions and bathrooms works out first. And how your precious princesses like it. Deal?

      The open border and mass ilegal imihration shoes us what our “betters” , the overlords of easy money, their puppets in the administrative state aka the D.C. swamp think of We The People. They think we ate trash. They hate us. The reason is very simple. We The People have power. It is sovereign power that comes from God. exercised through human agency. Each and everyone of us has power. The Globalists hate this.

      • Amuzed_Traveler March 31, 2024 at 11:10 am

        We have no power if we don’t stand up and exercise it.

      The analogy is relevant to the current developments concerning “squatting” and “squatters’ rights.” Contrast New York’s laws and enforcement thereof with Florida’s. I think these two areas of law are being challenged and publicized simultaneously by design. As in a communist country, first they bring in people from communist countries who have been indoctrinated in communist schools, then the government installs them in our homes (but not in Martha’s Vineyard).

    “They say it’s about more people working, but what about more people taking welfare and other subsidies?”

    I was standing in line at a Sam’s Club as I watched three Russian young women buying close to $1,200 worth of goods. They told the cashier they wanted to make separate purchases so as to take advantage of tax exempt status. The cashier told them that in Florida, food items are tax exempt unless they are prepared. So they waited and made a second purchase as tax exempt and paid for 98% of their entire purchases with their EBT card. So $1200 total purchases, tax free with their EBT cards! We are all paying for that.

  • Rodster March 29, 2024 at 7:36 pm

    When it comes to open borders, top globalist, George Soros and his son Alex who has taken the baton from his dad George, are behind a lot of this immigration crisis. Alex has been known to use his father’s money to support globalist politicians in the US, including Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris just to name a few.

    The cadre of individuals going after Donald Trump are linked to Soros campaign money.

  • Dan Gilfry March 29, 2024 at 9:00 pm

    Yeah, the Foreign Nazis that rule Europe tell the same lie!
    The REAL reason they mass-import these 3rd World
    Welfare Parasites is to get rid of White Christian
    Heck, they TOLD us that way back in 1897!
    But White Cowards STILL love the Foreign Nazis
    and worship them as “gods”!

    Absolutely agreed with that.

    Consider this, less than a week, since 22nd of March : “Crocus City Hall terror attack” in Moscow(Russia), or “Francis Scott Key Bridge Collapse” (Baltimore). Add to this the announcement by British Princess Kate Middleton of her cancer via social networks at the same time as the Moscow attack…
    A coincidence? I don’t think.

    Ask yourselves why those “immigrants” didn’t help the economies in their own countries.

    Great Article Brandon!

  • Covington March 31, 2024 at 3:13 am

    I see patterns emerging regarding the foght to defend the border as evidenced by the actions exhibited by Texas and the attourney general. My question is why haven’t we seen the use of deadly force by the Texas National Guard? I think I already know the answer. I would like your answer Brandon.

      Because they’re not allowed to, generally. Shooting unarmed civilians, even if they are illegally crossing the border, ends in bad optics. But, I can see things getting to the point where we do what some EU countries do with water cannons and tear gas to repel them. Can’t really blame Texas or their national guard – They have the federal government to contend with.

      • Amuzed_Traveler March 31, 2024 at 4:40 pm

        “Unarmed” – for now…

  • Amuzed_Traveler March 31, 2024 at 11:19 am

    That government spending is counted as positive GDP is the greatest accounting fraud I can imagine. Government spending is from two sources – current taxpayers and future taxpayers (many not yet born). Spending derived from current taxes is a negative since it robs the marketplace, where it is spent efficiently as opposed to wastefully. Spending from future taxes is like an individual counting purchases made on credit cards as income.

    Exposing this one fraud should be the focus of all so called republican politicians. Except they profit from it too.

  • Johnny March 31, 2024 at 3:18 pm

    Economics aside, the vast majority of these invaders, from Russia and China, to South America and Africa, have ALWAYS envied us from their squat settlements, and want nothing more than to take all we have, then they will abuse, torture, bring sickness and famine to us, as long as they benefit. To home invade, rape, rob and replace every. last. one. of. us. And, Biden and the gang KNOW this.

  • Jonathan N April 1, 2024 at 8:04 am

    The beliefs of pro-liberty Americans are the biggest threat to the UN/WEF plan of a one world fascist/communist government that enslaves everyone. So an obvious solution for them it to dilute the USA by bringing in millions who don’t know anything about or expect or believe in liberty whatsoever. Conservatives and libertarians are becoming a smaller and smaller minority in the USA by design so that eventually they’ll have almost no influence at all and probably will be considered criminals for belief in individual liberty and not being slaves.
